Bernard Mwato and Doris Wako, an Administration Police officer, had dated for an astonishing 21 years before finally deciding to tie the knot on August 17.

They were looking forward to a happy life together but death came knocking too soon.

19 days after their colourful wedding that was even attended by street children, Mwato lost his life.

He had visited his uncle in Funyula to collect a wedding gift but collapsed and was rushed to Busia County Referral Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Wako was devastated and took to social media to mourn the love of her life saying, “Rest in peace my love, till we meet again.”

Kenyans online flooded her timeline with condolence messages and asked her to remain strong during this difficult period.
